Leatt GPX 5.5 Neck Brace - another step forward in brace tech from the ORIGINATORS of the product.

The new Leatt GPX 5.5 has lowered side areas that increase comfort and wearability. A simple pop off shoulder pad that can raise or lower your brace to suit your neck length or helmet rim profiles. Both the front and the back feature has the new split design that promotes broader dissipation of energy transmitted to the body and have new molded padding for greater comfort. The semi-rigid chassis is flexible and adjustable enough to fit most riders’ body shape while the structure remains rigid enough to help transmit energy during an impact while multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at pre-determined stress levels to help contribute to a riders’ safety. The new and improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut is more comfortable than ever and still has the engineered fracture point at the top that allows it to break away in certain severe impacts. If broken this strut can be purchased as a replacement part and easily changed out. The strut is lined with the same soft padding as on all the surfaces that ride against your body and this protective padding is on the brace edges facing inwards towards the soft tissues of the neck. 

The core of what makes Leatt neck braces work is Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT) and for the ALPT to work optimally neck braces must fit correctly. The adjustability built into all Leatt neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing effectiveness of your neck brace. We believe that no other neck brace can be adjusted to fit riders as well as a Leatt®. The front and rear sliding SureFit adjusters can be set for your personal body shape, without tools, in less than 30 seconds. The brace can also be readjusted as necessary for growing kids or when worn with different apparel. To further optimize fit, the new and improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut has an exclusive feature that allows it to be adjusted to 4 setting angles. This is done with a simple elastomeric bumper that can be set at 0, 5, 10 or 15 degrees in seconds.

starrating Great Brace!
 
After experiencing first hand the consequences of a 40mph crash as a on coming driver on a cell phone blew a tight corner on a seasonal highway and gave me the choice between his hood or ditching my bike at the side of the road before it smashed into a cliff. Long story short I had a serious thoracic neck strain from jumping off my bike and trying to run it out like Willy Coyote from Loony Tunes. Dueto the weight of the helmet as my head was accelerated in to the ground as I skipped across a mild rock garden. Riders less lucky than me have been paralyzed in such incidents and thoracic strains are a common moto injury. I now ride with a this neck brace it was easy to fit the brace to my needs and it works seamlessly with my Leatt 5.5 Chest Protector HD Pro. While riding with this brace I barely notice it. I can still easily turn my head and the like. Don't do what I did. Gear up well the first time and get a good neck brace.
